For some reason, I like this quote from Bronson Arroyo, about Mike Leake:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t even know his name when I told Dusty Baker I thought that kid would be pretty good,Ã¢â‚¬Â Arroyo said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“I didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t know anything about him and I hadnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t seen him throw a bullpen, nothing. There was something about the way he walked around here.Ã¢â‚¬Â
We’ve already heard some stories about the way Mike Leake walks around the clubhouse. Perhaps that’s why Arroyo’s quote amused me so.
